Students Have Opportunity to Apply 
For Aptitude Tests for Deferment 



College students were urged to 
apply immediately for the aptitude 
tests which will serve as a means 
of determining draft deferments 
for students. The letter of appli- 
cation for the test must be post- 
marked before midnight May 15, 
in order to receive consideration. 
The plea came in a statement 
recently from Elmer P. Brooks, 
vice-president of the U. S. Na- 
tional Student association, an or- 
ganization which represents over 
800,000 American college stu- 
dents. 

Brock said he felt many stu- 
dents were under the impression 
the tests have been cancelled or 
have been made meaningless by a 
Congressional amendment to the 
draft bill stating that local draft 
boards are not bound by the re- 
sults of the tests in granting de- 
ferments. 

"It was , understood beforehand 
that the ultimate decision as to 
whether a student should or 
should not be drafted rests with 
his local draft board," Brock said. 
The amendment does not in any 
way modify the original plans 
for the aptitude tests, he said. 

Brock, 4-year veteran of World 
War II, said it is important that 
students cooperate in the defer- 
ment plan because of the need to 
maintain a continued flow of col- 
lege-trained personnel in any long 
range global struggle. 

He said that according to in- 
formation received at the Nation- 
al Student association headquar- 
ters, no student taking the test 
will be drafted until his test score 
and scholastic rating has been de- 
termined. 

Students should keep in mind 

Choir Ends Season 
In Home Concert 

T,he college a cappella choir 
will present its second home con- 
cert of the year at 3 p. m., Sun- 
day, May 20, in the Newberg 
Friends church. This concert will 
end the choir's 1950-51 touring 
season. 

In a dedication chapel on Fri- 
day, May 4, the choir presented 
their new robes to the college, as 
well as singing various selections 
from their regular concert pro- 
gram. Jim Higgins, choir presi- 
dent, told of the successful sea- 
son which the choir has had and 
of the many manifestations of 
God's grace to them through the 
year. In accepting the robes on 
behalf of the college, Dr. Paul 
Parker expressed his appreciation 
to each member of the choir and 
to Mr. Baker for the service which 
they have given the school this 
year. 

A semi-formal banquet for the 
choir members and their guests 
is being planned for Monday eve- 
ning, May 21. The banquet pro- 
gram will feature talent from out- 
side the choir, it was announced. 
It is hoped by choir executives 
that this banquet can become a 
traditional event to end the choir 
activities each year. 

In summing up the choir sea- 
son Mr. Marvin Baker, director 
of the 24 voice singing group, 
commented "The one predominate 
factor that can be expressed in 
regard to the activities of the 
choir, is that God has been with 
us at all times. I anticipate that 
the individual succeeding me as 
director will enjoy the cooperation 
of the choir personnel and the 
loyalty of the student body to the 
choir program, as I have enjoyed 
it this year." 



the plan does not exempt them 
from ultimate military service but 
provides them with the opportun- 
ity of pursuing their education 
during the next academic year, 
Brock pointed out. The student 
"has everything to gain and noth- 
ing to lose" by taking the test, he 
emphasized. 

Under an order issued by Pres- 
ident Truman, students who score 
70 or higher or who are in the 
upper ranks scholastically may 
receive an occupational defer- 
ment in order to continue their 
education. The test will be giv- 
en at testing centers throughout 
the nation, May 26, June 16, and 
June 30. 

"While no provisions have been 
made by Congress for the defer- 
ment and education of qualified 
students who can not afford to 
attend college, such a plan must, 
necessarily, be worked out in the 
future," Brock said. "At the pres- 
ent time, the primary objective 
of the aptitude test is to insure 
that top students now in college 
will be able to continue their ed- 
ucation."

"Because it is the practice

minuses, it seems adviscablc at 
this time for GFC to follow the 
same procedure," Miss Sutton 
registrar, reported recently. 



the teaching of English, which is 
the only departmental study 
group sponsored. 

The responsibility of the. foun- 
dational preparation for the Eng- 
lish conference sessions has been 
assumed by Dr. Mae Tenney of 
Greenville college, who spent a 
sabbatical year, 1948-49, in Eng- 
land gathering materials for the 
recently completed manuscript 
of a new book, The Wesleyan. 
Way. Topics for discussion during 
the early June meetings will be 
suggested by those delegates at- 
tending or by persons otherwise 
interested in the conference. 

As a member of the administra- 
tive staff of Los Angeles Pacific 
college, Dean McNichols attend- 
ed a similar conference sponsor- 
ed by the same group during the 
summer of 1947, at Winona. Lake, 
Indiana. At that time McNichols 
served as chairman of the person- 
nel division of the general work- 
shop. 



Mother, Home, Heaven 



Three words fall sweetly on my soul, 
As music from an angel's lyre, 

They bid my spirits spurn control, 

And upward to its source aspire; 

The sweetest sounds to mortals given 

Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven. 

Dear Mother! — ne'er shall I forget 

Thy brow, thine eye, thy pleasant smile; 
Though in the sea of death hath set 

Thy star of life, my guide awihile, 
Oh, never shall thy form depart 
From the bright pictures in my heart. 



And like a bird that from the flowers, 
Wing-weary seeks her wonted nest, 

My spirit, e'en in manhood's hours, 

Turns back in childhood's Home to rest; 

The cottage, garden hill, and stream, 

Still linger like a pleasant dream. 

And while to one engulfing grave 

By Time's swift tide we're driven, 

How sweet the thought that every wave 
But bears us nearer Heaven! 

There we shall meet, when life is o'er, 

In that blest Home, to part no more.

Bowman Describes 
Needs in Orient 

Bob Bowman, co-director of the 
Far East Broadcasting company 
in Manila, spoke and sang in the 
May eighth chapel service. 

After singing "Jesus Will Walk 
With Me," he introduced his pian- 
ist, Verie Patterson, who played 
"Over-shadowed" as a solo. 

The pianist, student-teacher at 
the Latin American Bible Insti- 
tute in Los Angeles, also accom- 
panied Bob, a baritone, in a new 
song, "Until the Sun Goes Down." 

Mr. Bowman then pictured the 
dire need in Asia and gave his 
burden for reaching the half of 
the world's population that is the 
Orient. 

He is well-qualified to tell of 
the Eastern situation today. Five 
years ago ho, John Broger and 
Bill Roberts consolidated the 
FEBC for the purpose of giving 
the Asiatic peoples the spiritual 
weapons to fight the Communistic 
onslaught. The corporation is an 
interdenominational non - profit 
missionary organization. 

God sent $20,000 to the direct- 
ors in 1945 to buy land north of 
Manila in the Philippines for the 
site of "the Christian radio city of 
the Orient." Today five stations 
there "under one roof" reach lit- 
erally around the world with the 
gospel message. 

Bob, who was formerly with 
First Mate Bob on his radio pro- 
gram, "The Haven of Rest" told 
GFC students and faculty that 
these five stations send thirty- 
two languages and dialects over 
the air-waves. 

He and the forty-four staff 
members thus radio to the Philip- 
pines, Indo-China, Japan, India, 
Burma, Siam, French Indo-China, 
Arabia, Europe and even around 
the world to the United States. 
Since "radio waves don't pay any 
attention to iron curtains," Mr. 
Bowman pointed out that even 
Russia is within FEBC's scope. 

In a statement following his 
address, Bob Bowman emphasized 
that the world-wide battle can 
only be fought on a spiritual plane 
above Communism. "We've got 
to see this or we're lost as a na- 
tion," he declared.

TALKING IT OVER 

Dedicated to Your Right to Think as You Please 
The lives of an estimated 70,000 men was the price the 
Chinese Communists paid for their spring offensive in 
Korea. 

Usng a familiar strategy, the Chinese poured their 
gratest offensive weapon, man power, on the U. N. troops, 
forcing them back to Seoul on the western edge of the fight- 
ing zone. 

Alhough the retreat of the allies resulted in South 
Korean ground lost, the U. N. troops sacrificed few men, 
and are now employing a good line of defense, somewhat 
shorter and therefore more compact than the one which was 
recently hit.

Government spending, which reached an all time high 
last year, is destined to mark another record during the 
1952 fiscal year with President Truman's recent "shot in 
the arm" in the form of a proposed $60 billion for military 
purposes alone. 

Ex-president Hoover's commission on governmental 
reorganization proposed various methods of curtailing our 
"necessary spending spree" a couple of years ago, but few 
of these recommendations have been enacted by Congress. 

A Gallup poll was Tonducfied recently in an attempt to 
learn how much the general public knows about the Hoover 
Commission report, as well as its reaction to the proposals 
thereof. 56 per cent of the cross-section of voters interview- 
ed had never heard of it. Of the 44 per cent who had 
heard of it, 20 per cent were unfamiliar with its purpose, 
20 per cent were in favor of the plan, and only 2 per cent 
were against it. 

Seventy-six per cent of the people in the U. S. (assuming 
the results of the poll are valid on the national scale) 
should familiarize themselves with a plan developed by top 
efficiency experts to save the U. S. billions of dollars in 
government operating expenses, and then inform their con- 
gressmen of resultant reactions before they assume the 
right to join the "gripe club" next March 15.

The "MacArthur policy" hearings which began May 
3, with General MacArthur as the first witness are fast 
becoming important history. 

In the words of Senator Richard B. Russell, chairman 
of 'the Committee on Armed Services who is presiding at 
the hearings, their purpose is "To obtain the facts which 
are necessary to permit the Congress to discharge its proper 
functions and make direct decisions on the problem of war 
and peace in the Far East and indeed throughout the world." 

Various news sources are publishing the entire tran- 
script of these hearings. Read it! Your efforts will be 
rewarded '. 



Let's Remember Mother 

How often have you remembered "Mom" this year? 
A letter every week? Maybe you've even marked her birth 
date in a little book, in order to remember to send her a 
card on that day. 

No matter how often you've thought of her this year, 
let's make it a special remembrance on May 13. 

Mother's Day comes but once a year, and really, Moth- 
ers are wonderful things to have! 



Dear Gremlin Friends: 

My, this has certainly been a 
busy week. I received a letter 
from an Unkel Dudly that had 
about six teeth in it and one fit 
ted! Too bad the postmark was 
blurred or I'd know who really- 
sent it to me. (Editorial comment. 
If you need any of those teeth 
be sure and let me know.) 

I went to the junior-senior ban- 
quet and boy, did I have fun! I 
went in a corsage box and Nancy 
Hald flipped me out cause she 
thought I was an old bug. (the 
very idea of her!) 

My cousin said he had just as 
much fun at the frosh-soph party. 
He got confused when he got 
caugnt in the overall pocket of 
the Siamese Twin act (Stanfield 
and Al Clark in "Pop's work pants) 
that went on. He rested under 
the edge of a pie but a face 
smearing job completely unnerv 
ed him. He's now in a home for 
dis-mentaled Gremlins. 

Love, marriage, hate. Love, 
marriage, hate — I heard a strange 
chant coming from the co-op. I 
saw the PEOPLE playing a pen 
cil and paper game. It seemed 
that one people named Roger 
Smith is going to marry all the 
freshman girls, but they hate him. 
(I'm getting so, even I don't be- 
lieve in people anymore.) 

Recent appearances on campus. 
— Jim Lieiike and TOelda Chandler 
have been seen having a bruisin' 
good time. My special reporter 
isn't back from his assignment 
so that's all on that front. 
— A Maypole practice can be in- 
teresting, at least Floyd Cole- 
man and Apphia Koch think so. 
(He even picked some flowers for 
her. Wonder if he asked a senior 
if he could?) 

— A solemn funeral of Hezekiah 
who had a very short reign at Ed- 
wards. Marynette 'Smith, is now 
offering her robin flight-training 
course to other bird orphans. 
— Phil Lamm and Jo Hendricks 
melodizing in the Music Hall "We 
could make such beautiful mus- 
ic — dum-dee-dum. 
—The three Mucketeers, Marion 
Clarkson, Gene Comfort and Jo 
Orkney, forming rank. 

She was rather tall but quite 
good looking and I whistled at 
her (I can now with my new 
tooth) but she just gave me a 
cold stare. I said under my 
breath "women, bah!" and tried 
once more. Lovely weather we 
are having for May Day isn't it, I 
sez. She stared coldly. I think 
that Margaret Dixon makes a 
lovely queen. She stared coldly. 
I like the court too, especially 
Wilbur Cyrus Field- I sez. She 
stared coldly. Ahem, do you know 
what time it is I asked, the 
PEOPLE will be coming in soon 
for lunch. She stared coldly. It 
was then that I realized she was 
a doll used in the May day decor- 
ations ip. the dining hall. (Well, at 
least she didn't have much to say 
and that's better than some wom- 
en I know.) 

On May day I went through 
the girls' dorm and stuffed my- 
self with candy. I just can't un- 
derstand girls any better than 
women. Why do they paint doors 
all different colors in a hall-way? 
And why do they have so much 
junk? Dolls, dolls, and more dolls; 
plants and frills and ruffles and 
more junk. I don't understand 
what they do with it all. Now 
take men; they have sensible 
things in their iwms like match 
book collections and home made 
radios and animal skins and their 
girls' pictures and well, all sorts 
of useful things. 

Be good or the PEOPLE will 
get you.

History of May Day Activities Reveals 
Customs of Queens, May Pole Winding 

The past week has been filled with festivities surrounding the 
crowning of Margaret I as Queen of May day and the honoring of 
Cardinal Gerald and the Royal Court. 

As one viewed the gala affair it might appear that May day was 
a modern invention; but as we probe into history we find that May 
day was an old custom long before our fore-fathers set foot on the 
shores of the New World. 

May has generally been regarded as a time for gladness and 
merry-making. It symbolizes the outbreaking of new life and beauty 
in nature. From a very early period the first day of "May was a time 
for joyous festivities. 

In Christian times in the Celtic countries the church Christianiz- 
ed this celebration by transferring it to June 24, the feast of St. 
John, which is still celebrated with bonfires. 

In England during the middle ages it was customary for all 
people, both high and low — even the court itself— to go at an early 
hour on the first May morning to pick flowers and hawthdm 
branches. About sunrise these were borne back to the towns and 
villages, to the accompaniment of horn and tabor with all possible 
signs of joy and merriment. The center of the procession was occu- 
pied by the May pole, glorious with wreaths and. ribbons. The May 
pole, usually made 6f birch, was set up for the day only, but in Lon- 
don and the larger towns the poles were of durable wood and were 
permanently erected. After arriving home, the people then proceed- 
ed to decorate their doors and windows with the flowers and 
branches. They named the hawthorn bloom "the May," and called 
the ceremony "the bringing home of May." They spoke of the expe- 
dition into the woods as "going a-maying." 

The fairest maid of the village was crowned with flowers as the 
"Queen of May." She was placed in a little bower or arbor, where 
she sat in state, receiving the homage and admiration of the youth- 
ful revelers who danced and sang around her. 

The custom of having a May queen seems to be a relic of the 
old Roman celebration of the day set aside to» worship the Goddess 
Flora. 

The frivolities of the affair were frowned upon by the Puritans 
and the May poles were a special eyesore to them. May poles were 
forbidden by Parliament in 1644, but came once more into favor 
during the Restoration. In 1661, a May pole 134 feet high was set 
up by twelve British sailors under the personal supervision of James 
n, then Diike of York. 

From ancient to -modern times May day has been recognized as 
a time of joy and fun, so we moderns haven't thought up anything 
new after all. The old saying "there's nothing new under the sun," 
seems to have proven itself true again. 



Sermonette . . . 

By Wanda Pierson 
Matthew 17 tells of Peter, 
James and John, Who were with 
Christ at the time of His trans- 
figuration on the mountain top. 

These disciples "were mdeed fort- 
unate to be with the Master at 
this triumphant moment. They 
were privileged also to see Moses 
and Elias with Him. 

Peter desired that three taber- 
nacles be built "for the three glor- 
ious figures. "But even while he 
spoke, Moses and Elias were over- 
shadowed by a cloud, and a voice 
said, "This is my beloved Son, 
in whom I am well pleased; hear 
ye Him." 

At this time 'the disciples be- 
came afraid and fell upon their 
faces, but Christ told them to 
arise and be not afraid. 

In the eighth verse, we have 
an example of what we as true 
Christians should do. "They saw 
no man, save Jesus only." 

If only we might look contin- 
ually at Jesus. These disciples 
looked away from Christ and toad 
the desire for that which was not 
God's plan. But when these things 
passed away they saw only Christ. 
May we walk close by the side 
of Jesus and keep our eyes con- 
tinually upon Him.

STREET-HOCKETT 

There they are again! Again 
. . . and again . . .to Portland, it 
said on the sign-out book in Kan- 
yon hall. As much as Betty May 
Street and Gene Hockett are to- 
gether, it looks as if there might 
be more wedding "bells ringing in 
the future. 

Who? Betty May? Oh, I'm 
sorry, she's gone somewhere with 
Gene. 

Who? Betty May is gone right 
now. Could I take a message. 

Again? It's beginning to look 
as if . . . 

Oh, have you heard the news? 
They announced it at last! Yes, in 
the dining hall Tuesday noon, May 
1. Dean McNichols read some 
poem, and then, Betty May and 
Gene, engaged. No, they haven't 
decided on a date for the wedding 
yet, but they've announced it at 
last. 



Miss Lucy Clark 
Honored at Shower 

Miss Lucy Clark, GFC English 
and dramatics instructor, was 
guest of honor at a bridal Show- 
er last evening to the college din- 
ing hall. 

As the guests assembled, a back- 
ground of bridal music was play- 
ed on the piano by Pat Cooksley, 
Portland. Gifts were placed in a 
gold and white hope chest, before 
a brick wall, bordered with plants 
ana flowers. 

The program included two solos 
by Eleanor Burton, Salem, and, 
Priscilla Doble,- junior; a reading 
by Wilma "Harris, senior; and two. 
violin -solos by Genevieve Mills,

Prayer for Strength 

By Wilma Harris 
I walked along a wooded slope 
Where flowers bloomed and robins 
sang; 

Where sunshine flecked the grassj 
earth; 

Where bluejays' chirps with glad- 
ness rang. 

As I beheld the beauty there, 
I knelt upon the grassy sod 
And lifted from my weary hear 
A prayer of praise and love to God 

"I thank Thee. Father, for TfaJ 
love; 

For strength to live for Thee thii 
day. 

May this same scene refresh thi 
soul 

Of everyone who comes this waj 



'Good 0M Days' 
Theme of Musicale 



"Good Old Days" was the theme 
of the musical production present- 
ed May 5 under the direction of 
Arleta Wright at 8:00 p. m. in 
Wood-Mar auditorium. 

The scene of the program was 
a back yard of a home in the 
"Gay '90's", where Pa (Jim Hig- 
gins) and Ma (Margaret Weber) 
were sitting. Their son (Randall 
Emry) came home from college, 
bringing with him the other three 
members of a male quartet (Gene 
Smith, Bud Mardock, Fred Little- 
field). They sang a medley of old 
favorites and "Kentucky Babe." 
A trio of young high school girls 
(Norma Dillon, Lucy Edmundson, 
Bethlin Harmon) came in to see 
Randall, singing "My Hero." They 
were followed by three other col- 
lege students, who also came to 
see Randall. The trio (Priscilla 
Doble, Marilyn Barnes, Klane 
Robison) sang "Mocking Bird 
Hill", followed by a solo "Let Me 
Call You Sweetheart", by Pris- 
cilla, and a duet ''Memories" by 
Bud and Priscilla. 

Comedy was supplied by Roy 
Knight and Clem Brown, two lo- 
cal farmers. With the aid of their 
guitar, they sang two comic num- 
bers. 

Two young farm boys (Harry 
Ryan, Gene" Mulkey) came to 
stare at the college students, and 
Harry played "Alexander's Rag- 
time Band," on his trumpet. 

Pa, feeling inspired by all the 
singing, sang "When Big Profun- 
da Sang Low C". All the men 
gathered to sing "I Had a Dream, 
Dear," and the entire group clos- 
ed with "Cruising Down the Riv- 
er on a May Day Afternoon."

Rabbi Nodel Gives "Jewish Answers 
To Christian Questions' in GFC Chapel 



"Jewish answers to Christian 
questions" were given by Rabbi 
Nodel of Portland, Oregon, to GFC 
students in last -Monday's chapel 
program. 

"We're all different," the Rabbi 
pointed out. The diversity of land- 
scape makes it beautiful, he ex- 
plained; it is much the same with 
life." Differences of opinion bring 
a higher quality of statesmanship, 
literature and religion, for there 
would be little progress if all were 
the same. 

"Yet, Christians should strive 
to understand Judaism and realize 
that misconceptions of its beliefs 
are widespread," Rabbi Nodel con- 
tinues 

The first question the speaker 
answered was, "What is Juda- 
ism?" Tiie closest definition, he 
said, would be a fundamental be- 
lief in God, who is a power for 
righteousness." Rabbi Hillel, who 
lived in the century before Christ, 
gave as another definition the now- 
famous Golden Rule. 

A second query that usually con- 
fuses non-Jews is whether Judiism 
is a race, a nation or a religion, 
the Rabbi noted. The common bond 
is not biological but socio-religious. 
Thus Judaism could also be defin- 
ed as the historical religion exper- 
ience of the Jews. 

"One may become a Jew but al- 
though anyone can be born a Jew, 
not everyone can die a Jew," the 
Rabbi declared. 

To the question of Judaism being 
an international conspiracy, Rabbi 
Nodel gave an emphatic, "No!" 

Many times it has been asked 
Whether the Jews have mission- 
aries or any other conversion ac- 
tivity. Here again the answer giv- 
en by the speaker wajs .negative. 
Jews are primarily seekers of 
truth, he stated, and they realize 
they do not have a monoply on the 
whole truth. 

The fifth question, one usually 
asked by Christians, was "What 
about Jesus?" The Jewish belief 
is that Christ is not a Diety nor a 
God-man. The Rabbi pointed out 
that, although Moses was the 
greatest man in Hebrew history, he 
was not made divine. He feels 
Jesus' place in Jewish history is 
much the same. 

The four bases the Rabbi Nodel 



gave for his religion were: purity 
of soul (All have original virtue); 
the worthwhileness of man; 
works, not belief, unto salvation; 
and social righteousness (Value is 
placed on the part one plays rather 
than in the individual salvation). 

Thus the Rabbi summarized the 
first task of Christians in this: to 
understand the answers to these 
question and to frankly search for 
the truth. "An ignorant man can 
never be a pious man," he warned 
in closing. 



On the Lighter Side . . . 



Eds, Co-eds Reveal Vacation Plans 



With June 1, and vacation only 
three weeks in the future, the Cres- 
cent's roving reporter smelled a 
lead for some info. "What are 
you going to be doing this sum- 
mer?" was asked to an average 
slice of the GFC students, as they 
wandered into the Hoover snack- 
shack and about the "newly-shorn" 
campus. Their answers. 

Pat and Carmen Parmenter — 
"We're going home to Mother Mur- , 
phy in Tacoma." 

Boni Barnes — "Summer school j 
at Reed college in Portland". 

Marilyn Barnes — "Drive tractor 
on th? Idaho farm; work as song 
leader during girls' camp at Quak- 
er Hill." 

Jo Hendricks — Stay west from 
West Virginia. 



Speakers Enter 
Old Pulpit Contest 

The preliminaries for the old 
pulpit sermonette contest, an an- 
nual event originating in 1917, 
were held Wednesday evening fol- 
lowing the mid-week prayer serv- 
ice in Room 14. As this goes to 
press, the names of those who 
won in the competition have 
not yet been revealed. The finals 
are scheduled for a chapel period 
next week. 

First place winner in the con- 
test will receive $5, along with the 
honor of having his name engrav- 
ed on the bi'onze plaque now 
fastened to the front of the first 
pulpit ever used in Newberg, 
from which the contest draws its 
name. Second place winner will 
receive $2.50. Judges for the final 
event will be the college speech 
instructors, and the local pastor. 

Frank Starkey, junior religion 
major, was the 1949 contest win- 
ner, while Louise Ralphs, senior, 
claimed first prize last year.

HOMt j 





























By Ralph Bcebe 

The last week has really seen 
the Quaker baseball team come 
into its own. Since Cliff Ralphs 
joined the squad, and Gene Smith 
returned from his quartet trip 
to California, the club has been 
entirely rejuvenated. 

Coach McGrath put Ralphs at 
short and moved Sammy Andrews 
to a more familiar role of center 
field. With Smith doing the pitch- 
ing, and the improved support, 
the entire ball team looks better. 

In the hitting department it 
looks like first baseman Verne 
Martin has the edge nearly all the 
way. Verne has the most hits on 
the squad, (8), the most runs, 
(8), the highest batting average, 
(.571), the most total bases, (14), 
doubles, (2), and is second in 
triples, (2). Gene Smith is first 
in the three base hit department, 
with three in the two games he's 
played. Sammy Andrews is far 
ahead in runs batted in, with ten. 
No other Quaker has knocked 
across more than two. 

An amusing side-light on the 
game Wednesday was the actions 
of Andrews as he went to bat in 
the eighth. Play had already gone 
into extra innings and the Quak- 
ers were two runs behind with 
tho sacks full and two men out. 
Andrews, always a clown, asked, 
"What would Joe DiMaggio do in 
a situation like this?" Well, any- 
way, whether the great DlMag 
would have done it or not, Sam- 
my unloaded on a fast ball and 
sent it for a base hit to left, driv- 
ing across two runs to tie the 
score again. 

The "scotch-tape" man on this 
year's squad is Gene Brown. Gene 
has been doing a great job as 
trainer. He has practically turned 
Hoover hall into an infirmary for 
decrepit old ball players. It's a 
big job, keeping a team on the fir- 
ing line, but Gene has been doing 
it masterfully. Another of his du- 
ties is that of keeping the score- 
book. So although Gene doesn't 
play himself, he contributes about 
as much to winning games as 
anyone. 

Jerry Carr is manager. A spe- 
cial duty aside from the usual, of 
keeping towels ready, cleaning 
the locker room, and having suits 
in condition, is that of caretaker 
of the diamond. He's spent many 
hours mowing grass and smooth- 
ing the infield. Don't think your 
work isn't appreciated, Jerry. 

Woody Fletcher's Softball team 
looks pretty good in spite of its 
trouncing at the hands of WSER 
Wednesday. One of the outstand- 
ing performances of the season 
was when the infield turned an 
error into a triple play while beat- 
ing Portland First Friends in the 
opening game. 

Elsewhere on this page is a sea- 
son record of all GFC baseballers. 
The probability that some do not 
know the abbreviations given 
prompts us to explain that "AB" 
means times at bat, exclusive of 
walks and sacrifice hits. "H" is 
base hits, "R", runs scored, and 
"RBI", runs batted in. "Ave." 
means batting average, or (he 
number of base hits figured as 
a porccutagc of the times at bat. 
In box scores of games, "O" is 
for put outs while in the field, and 
"A" is assists, that is, usually a 
throw made for a put out.

Softball Clan Wins 
Over Church Team, 
Loses to WSER 

The George Fox college Softball 
team split its two most recent 
games. On May 4, they rolled over 
First Friends church in Portland 
14 to 3 in Portland, as pitcher 
Bill Field, held the Friends in 
check while his mates were col- 
lecting 7 hits, 11 walks with 6 
errors as their part in helping the 
home clan along. 

In the second game WSER 
trampled George Fox 20 to 3 on 
the home diamond Wednesday af- 
ternoon, May 9. Coach Woody 
Fletcher used his reserves in the 
first a innings with inexperienced 
Gene Hockett pitching the first 
4 innings. The first string was 
being reserved for the possibility 
of a double header with the Sher- 
idan town team the following 
evening.

An 8 to 2 victory over Reed 
highlighted May Day activities 
Saturday. 

In the first stanza Verne Mar- 
tin tripled with two out, and 
came in on a wild pitch. Cliff 
Ralphs led off the second and 
was beaned by a slow curve. The 
fiery shortstop was not hurt, and 
trotted down to first. Then pitch- 
er Gene Smith unloaded a tre- 
mendous triple, far down the left 
field foul line, which only a 
speedy recovery saved from 
being a home run. Smith scored 
on an infield ground out by Sam- 
my Andrews. 

After two scoreless innings, the 
Quakers made it 4 to nothing in 
the fifth when Harry Magee was 
safe on an error, and Ralph Beebe 
and Verne Martin singled. After 
the Griffins made it 4 to 2 in the 
top of the sixth, GFC bounced 
back to score two of their own. 
The Reed runs came as center 
fjelder Jacobs tripled with two 
men on. Singles by Ralphs and 
Smith, and three infield errors 
gave the Quakers their pair. 

The winners added one more in 
the seventh, as Martin walked, 
went to third on Ralphs' single, 
Beebe was hit by a pitch, Martin 
walked, and Cliff Ralphs lined a 
and scored on another infield er- 
ror. The final run was marked 



up in the eighth when second base 
man Jim Higgins singled, went to 
second on a walk by Beebe, and 
came in on Martin's third hit, a 
double. 

Smith, a strong-armed right 
hander, seemed to get better as 
the game went along. He fanned 
ten and walked only two. In the' 
top of the ninth, three Griffins 
went down swinging to end the 
game.

Andrews Drives in Winning Run 
In Eleven Inning Overtime Tilt 

Sammy Andrews stepped to the single by Dong, 
plate in the last of the eleventh ' 
inning Wednesday, and slapped a 
long base hit to left, driving in 
Gene Smith with the run that 
beat Lewis ana Clark junior var- 
sity 9-8. 

It was scheduled for seven in- 
nings, but when the allotted play 
had elapsed, the score stood 6-6. 
In the top of the eighth, the vis- 
itors scored twice, and the Quak- 
ers' hopes were dimmed. How- 
ever, the GF'ers loaded the bases 
and a single by Andrews drove 
across two runs to continue the 
deadlock. 

Gene Smith struck out ten and 
walked only four in going the 
entire 11 inning route. Only three 
of the LC runs were earned as the 
Quakers gave rather shaky sup- 
port, committing seven errors. 

Lewis and Clark scored three 
times in the first, as leadoff man 
Shepard was safe on an error, 
Berteleit and MacDonald singled, 
and Jennings doubled. The Quak- 
ers retaliated with two on singles 
by Harry Magee and Dick Zeller, 
and an infield error. 

In the second, Shepard doubled 
and Tsujmura singled, putting the 
visitors into a 4-2 lead. The 
Quakers made one on a single 
by Kenny Magee, a sacrifice by 
his brother, Harry, and a one 
base blow from the bat of Ralph 
Beebe. In the top of the third 
the JV's added another on Long- 
ballo's long ball over the left 
fielder's head for a triple, and a

There was no more scoring un- 
til the fifth when Lewis and Clark 
made it a 6-3 lead as Smith 
yielded a walk and singles to Jen- 
nings and Hahn. In the bottom 
of that frame Beebe walked, Mar- 
tin doubled, and Andrews drove 
them both in with a single. The 
Quakers tied it up in the sixth as 
single to left. 

Lewis and Clark went two runs 
ahead in the eighth on singles 
by Tsujmura, Dong, and Hahn, 
coupled with two George Fox er- 
rors. A determined Quaker crew 
came to bat in the do-or-die in- 
ning. Ralph Beebe led off with 
a single to center. Glen Living- 
ston went in as a pinch runner 
and stole second base. After one 
was out, Dick Zeller walked. With 
two down, Gene Smith kept the 
rally alive with a walk. Then 
Sammy Andrews hit a screaming 
liner to left, and the game was 
deadlocked again. 

Steen went in to pitch ^or Lewis 
and Clark, and handcuffed the 
Quakers without a hit in the next 
two innings. Smith maintained an 
even pace and it looked as though 
play might continue indefinitely. 
But the bottom of the eleventh 
rolled around, and Smith opened 
the inning with a booming triple 
to deep left center. Andrews 
whacked one far to left which 
would have been an extra base 
blow had the ball game not end- 
ed when Smith touched home 
plate with the winning run.
